Kunena 5.2 Beta 1 Released (24 Sep 2020)

The Kunena team is thrilled to announce the first public beta release of Kunena 5.2, a native Joomla extension for Joomla 3.9. This is a development release and should be only be used for testing; this version is not recommended for live websites at this stage.

The purpose of this release is to encourage testing by downloading, installing and identifying any problems or shortcomings that people may discover. K 5.2.0 B1 is stable and we are aware that people will discover defects. We encourage you to use the forum to report defects, as soon as they are discovered, so that the development team can work through the problems before the release of K 5.1 as a stable product. Reporting defects does not mean that the problems can or will be fixed. The Kunena team is looking forward to hearing your feedback on how well we have achieved our design goals.

× This category is for the plugin developed, endorsed, maintained and supported by the Kunena project team. The topics in this category only relate to the plugin developed for K 3.0 and later versions.

If you are having problems then, for your own benefit, it would save us all a lot of time if you would kindly post your configuration report when you ask for help from this forum. If you do not post your configuration report we will not ask you for it but you will probably not get your problem solved, either.

"Recent Topics" is not a category. Go to Components » Kunena » Category Manager and post a screenshot of that page.

Great work! :woohoo:

I have changed the subject of this topic and made it "sticky" because it may help other people who are in a similar situation to you.

You have two Kunena categories . They are "Welcome Mat" and "Suggestions Box" (their corresponding IDs are 2 and 3 respectively).

The next thing to do is to change the setting in the Kunena Discuss plugin as follows:

Kunena Discuss » Default Forum Category = 2

This means that, when people post comments about any Joomla articles you write, their comments will create new topics in your "Welcome Mat" category. You can create a different category later if you want to keep comments separate from the rest of your forum's activities.

Let's try that change to see what happens next, OK?

I looked at your site and things are looking pretty darned good now.

The only other problem is that you have locked your "Welcome Mat" category and no-one (except for site administrators and forum moderators) can post comments using the Kunena Discuss plugin. So, if you want other people to be able to post their comments, you will need to unlock the forum category (in your case "Welcome Mat").

On the right hand side of the screen; see the column "ID"?

It all depends on how people approach the subject.

(1) There is no such thing as a "stupid" question. People ask questions to learn and, in answering those questions we all learn from them. There are no stupid questions but there are plenty of dopey answers! :laugh:

(2) Everyone's experience is different. I don't know why no-one else thought to workshop an example of this before (and, it must be said, not everyone's patience or "endurance" in working these things through step by step is the same, either). Sometimes topics like this can go on for weeks and weeks because people have not the desire to participate as energetically as we have done today and, for that, I am very grateful to you. I'm not trying to second-guess wny no-one else has "realised" the issue (as you put it) but perhaps people found the "quick and dirty" guide was sufficient? Who knows.

Now that we've dealt with this matter, you have learnt a few things about how to use Joomla and where you can find where Joomla "things" are managed. Heck, we should have made a movie about this workshop, eh? ;)

Good luck and, if you have more questions about how to use Kuenna Discuss, we're here to help as best we can.

Cheers!
